Yes and coup d’etat is shortened to coup in American English. So determining the meaning in context is very important as to whether it is an accolade (coup), final blow (coup de grace) or attempted overthrow (coup d’etat). As all three are commonly used in American English as simply coup.

No they aren't, and my American Heritage is closer to the Wiki definition I put up.

You're not alone in feeling the way you do. My first thought when I watched the vid of her signing was one of anger and disgust. Americans should be pissed that the Dems are trying to silence half of the voices of America. Our voice doesn't matter to them, they don't GAF about anyone that doesn't think exactly the way they do or agree with them. Piss off Nancy Pelosi and crew, you'll are the spitting image of a deplorable nazi in my eyes.

So tell me again, who's creating the divide?

I knew a Brit that pronounced coupe as coo-pay. Yet sang Little Deuce Coupe properly. Go figure.

Try coup d'etat.


A coup d'état (/ˌkuː deɪˈtɑː/ (About this soundlisten); French: [ku deta]), also known by its German name putsch (/pʊtʃ/), or simply as a coup, is the overthrow of an existing government by non-democratic means; typically, it is an illegal, unconstitutional seizure of power by a dictator, the military, or a political faction.[1]


It need not be violent at all, only illegal and/or unconstitutional and carried out by a political faction. It very much fits.


Yes, it is a phrase from the French, meaning, literally, "stroke of state".

It's original use did not have the meaning of a blow against the state but was rather, a decisive government action. During, and after the French Revolution it was used to describe a blow against the state, such as those perpetrated by Napoleon Bonaparte.

Also, the 'État' part should more properly be capitalized as it denotes a sovereign political entity.

The use of the isolated word 'coup' to mean a coup dÉtat is ignorant of the fact that the isolated word already has a different meaning than is commonly applied to the abbreviation.

This is truly one sad day for the nation.
But the good news in all of this is that the Democratic party is one step closer to their grave. One of these days the nation will not have to deal with this slimy corrupt party anymore. We will just have to contend with what follows. A new party will just be filled by the same people that is bringing this party to it's destruction.

Perhaps you should look up 67?

This is farce.


No, it is people using the wrong word because they heard someone else misuse the word.

It seems to happen a fair bit.

Dictionaries aren't too hard to use.


Just like the Dems calling our nation a democracy when it's a Republic.

If you think about it, in the last primary superdelegates were used to override their voters within the party. So why not use the House to override the voters of the last election. Which is precisely why the Dems need to be extinguished as a political party.

So yes you should STILL look up 67 as you have no understanding.

How about a good old fashioned duel? Trump was the only candidate in 2016 that was a CCW permit holder.

I'll tell the truth here. I have, I think, done a pretty good job of restraining my emotions dealing with democratic sloths here and am chomping at the bit to cut loose on them but T&C and the mods would ban me for sure.

Which is exactly why is it not a coup. It is neither illegal nor unconstitutional.

Because it *is* in the Constitution, and therefore a legal and Constitutional process.

I could use the legal system and accuse you of molesting goats. Now I know you're not a goat-molester.

But if I use the legal system to punish you for goat molesting, does what I'm doing make it legal?

The impeachment trial is a court case, not a popularity contest.
